The Radiantly Optimistic Poster Show
We are inspired by the groundswell of optimistic and visionary activities in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We are interested in this time period and the massive countercultural movement it produced in the face of international political and social turmoil. We find ourselves in a similar global environment of unprecedented crises and we are wondering how we can make visible and cohesive the currently existing activities. Is there potential to add to the optimistic histories of past activisms with our own movements? This project seeks to create a discussion about the place of optimism in the face of war, environmental devastation, and global capitalism. We asked people to make posters about their own work or reflect on how we can make optimistic plans to all go along together.
